Jetpack Needed?

Considering that the minimum posted speed limit on this Interstate highway is 45 mph, Jetpacks would be a useful accessory for these bicycles. But it’s not as dangerous as it looks – the entire stretch of the Southern Connector was shut down on Sunday as part of the Bikeville Classic time trials. The general public had a chance to ride the 20 mile course on the Interstate before the time trials began.

It was a challenge to get this as I was riding, and trying to minimize the amount of the heavy rain getting on the camera – not entirely successful as can be seen in this view.
